Christmas and New Year in the Olympic Park


Opening times and offers during the holiday period and for New Year

Quickly wrapping presents, taking the last cookies out of the oven, decorating the tree - the days in the run-up to Christmas are usually pretty hectic. So a bit of recuperation and relaxation will do everyone the world of good. That's why the Olympic Park is offering a whole raft of activities for Christmas and New Year, including: swimming, ice skating, indoor football and much more. Or simply soak up the festive atmosphere and enjoy a leisurely walk ...

Or how about a lap in the pool? On 24th December and 31st December 2018, the Olympic Indoor Swimming Pool will be open from 7.30 a.m. to 2 p.m. (ticket office closes at 1 p.m.), and on 25th and 26th December from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. On 1st January 2019, the indoor swimming pool will be open from 10 a.m. Find out more at https://www.swm.de/privatkunden/m-baeder/schwimmen/hallenbaeder/olympia-schwimmhalle.html
